Dream- Mixed Media Canvas

Hello, friends!
I am back again sharing a Mixed Media Canvas I have made using our Papericious's this month's release - "The Vintage Attire" and "The Golden Garden" collections. The Vintage Attire premium collection has some really beautiful prints, perfect for creating any backgrounds and all the Mixed Media fans would love the designs in this pack. I have used the Vintage Attire to create the base of my canvas design by doing paper tearing and layering these papers using Gel Medium, then I gessoed over it. Here's a look at it :

 To create the background of my canvas, I have layered strips of paper from The Vintage Attire collection by Papericious, then did stenciling using stencils from MFT and Tim Holtz using Wendy Vecchi Embossing paste in white. Once it dried, I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Mists- Hottie Pattotie. I have paper pieced some flowers and leaves from The Golden Garden collection by Papericious  and then embellished it using MDF pieces, a white resin frame and my handmade flowers, and some pollen fillers too.
The sentiment is stamped using Visible image stamp and heat embossed it using White embossing powder on a black cardstock paper. The word 'Dream' are alpha stickers from the Chickaniddy Crafts- Date Night collection which I have colored with Versafine Onyx black ink and added Glossy Accents over it.

My canvas was inspired by the this time's gorgeous inspiration photograph at the Scrap Around the World blog and it measures 10 X 10 inches. Here's a look at the beautiful picture :
I was inspired by the colors, the soft pink and the browns and the beautiful flower on the book and the script background. 
I'm also entering this in the PPS September challenge- Embossing. I've done heat embossing on the sentiment and on the MDF pieces.
I am entering this canvas for this month's STAMPlorations Mixed Media challenge - Sep  ( I have used  stencils on my background )
I have taken bits of the inspiration picture and included in my canvas. The quote is perfect with the theme of my canvas, too! Taking time to live life does, indeed inspire our work. :)

Hope you like my work. Your comments totally make my day, so do leave me your feedback.
Have a nice day everyone.
